Thank you for letting me know it fits I also need to know what I need, do I need the M3 transmission, or will my stock work, and can I use the 95 M3s differetial, when I install the new ECU will it plug-and-play so to speak, or do I need a whole new wiring setup. Lastly do I need the M3's exhaust manifold, or will my stock exhaust work (dinan muffler) thank you!

you would need the ecu, probably would plug right since they were made at almost the same time...3 year difference.

if you have a stick in the 525 and the m3 is a stick, it would be real easy to swap the tranny too... if one is stick and the other one auto, it would probably cost you to much time and money, and would be best to stick with whatever you got.

keep us updated.

Custom engine mounts will have to be made, as well as tranny mounts... I think this can be a very expensive project!!
